Address

I have to admit it fooled me to start with as the location address looked like one in the UK at first sight. I found the bug and was scratching my head what it was doing in the UK, it was then I clicked on the location and saw it was NSW. Everything fitted then.

Address

As a rule it's always worth opening the location. I have been caught out in the past once or twice trying to identify what I thought was a UK species only to find out later that it came from half way round the world.
